Like all of Darien’s private clubs, Wee Burn is not downtown, and like most, it’s away from highways. Nevertheless, surveillance video of the parking lot showed a black SUV arrive in the lot, and two men get out of it, then begin pulling on vehicle door handles.

The video showed one of the men open the driver’s-side door of the victim’s 2018 Jeep Wrangler and enter it.

The victim told police he wasn’t sure how much money was in the wallet, but it held his driver’s license, along with various identification cards and bank cards.
